Spring Semester in Waimanalo

Now that the spring semester is over, we can start looking forward to the summer! Here is quick recap of SOFT's Spring Semester!

We have been working hard out at Waimanalo and it looks great! New fruit trees, vegetables and herbs have been planted as we continue to fill in the gaps.

The bananas are going bananas! it is finally time for most of them to start fruiting, so we look forward to a bountiful harvest this summer when they are ready.

Thanks to the helpful volunteers that came out on the Spring Workday Event, we were able to plant, mulch and fertilize faster then ever.

As soursops get larger and larger and the guava trees begin to bear more fruit than ever, we just cant wait to share our harvest with our loyal customers that show up to the weekly sales.

We have planted more sweet potato as well as potato potatoes, broccoli, chayote, eggplant, keffir lime, mandarin orange, more coconuts, jaicama, amaranth, basil, surinam cherry and much much more!

The spring semester also allowed us our first time harvest of several different bananas, loquat, pomegranate, cucumber, and all sorts of delicious fruits!

As usual, we encourage everyone to come out this summer and have fun at the farm!
